It's my turn to host a challenge over at Memorable Seasons and this week's challenge is a really easy one! :) You have until the end of April to submit a project and you will be entered in the monthly drawing. Here is the thread you need to link your cards to when you are finished.

So here's my challenge:
Create a card with a circle background. You can create the circles from anything you'd like: stamps, pattern paper punched circles, etc. Just use your imagination!

Here's my card:

And here's how I created it:
I stamped a circle image stamp in pink ink on my card base. Then I stamped the same image with blue and green ink too. I punched out the image with various sized circle punches and layered them onto the pink image. I punched some of the circles smaller than their original size so that the stamped pink circles would be larger and frame them. This was an easy way to combine the three colors on the background.
Then I cut out a larger circle from pattern paper to frame my focal point and added a photo on top of that. My title is stamped with a small wooden alphabet stamp. I also added jewels to the centers of the circles.
Can't wait see what you all come up with for this challenge! :)
